Support For New Lawyers

Dean Standish "Stan" Perkins knows that getting a new firm off the ground can be a daunting task, and that it can be challenging when new attorneys are presented with good cases that require extensive resources or experience.

That is why Stan is committed to mentoring a new generation of lawyers, lending his time and resources to support a cadre of fledgling solo practitioners and offering assistance to those whose legal careers are beginning.

He has funded and provided guidance through Low Bono Incubator Program at his alma mater, Seattle University School of Law, to almost 20 recent graduates. This year there are 11 participants who get to meet regularly with Stan, attended seminars, and benefit from his successful practice and significant experience in personal injury law. He also serves as an adjunct professor at the law school and regularly makes presentations to students, alumni, and fellow attorneys through programs run by the law school's Access to Justice Institute.

Stan and his firm also are available to provide support to new lawyers who face challenging personal injury cases. We can tailor the support we offer to meet your needs, letting you take the lead in your own case while providing you with information and resources that enable you to be effective.

Stan is happy to help alumni start their own businesses.

"It's the type of thing I always wished I had when I got out of school. I saw a little gap between the law school education to passing the bar to jumping into the tank of entrepreneurship."
